A domestic violence charge is an accusation that you have assaulted someone in your family, someone you have been living with or someone you have a child with. This could include an ex-lover, a cousin, a girlfriend or boyfriend, a parent, or anyone else that is related to you by blood. Not only could you be facing jail time and fines, but this type of conviction can also impact other aspects of your life such as custody of your children, your living situation and even your career.
Let Brad Mathis, an experienced criminal defense lawyer, help you with this difficult circumstance. At Brad Mathis Law Office, we represent clients across Minneapolis faced with criminal accusations and arrests, including domestic violence charges.
What Is At Stake?
This depends entirely on what degree of domestic assault you are charged with. First-degree assault is considered a felony offense and comes with up to 20 years in prison and $20,000 in fines. Even a fifth-degree assault charge can result in jail time and fines. In addition to this, you may have an order for protection against you, which prevents you from seeing your children or living in the same area as your relatives.
Domestic violence cases can get complicated. You need an experienced lawyer to assess your case and devise a successful defense strategy. In addition to representation for domestic assault, Brad Mathis can also help you with
- Violation of an order for protection (OFP) claims
- Kidnapping and false imprisonment claims, often following a custody battle
- Child abuse or neglect claims
